The Skirmish South of Port Farrall was the first of a series of battles around Port Farrall following the sinking of and evacuation from Jacinto. Only hours after the sinking, a group of Locust stragglers were sighted near the south side of the city and were quickly engaged by the Coalition forces and defeated.

Order of Battle[]


"Stragglers were inevitable. And this time, they were almost welcome."
Dom's thoughts before the ambush

After the evacuation of Jacinto and Operation: Hollow Storm, Cpl. Dominic Santiago went into the woods to find himself while still dealing with the fact that he killed his wife. Sgt. Marcus Fenix tried to snap him back into reality and succeeded. A few minutes later, they spotted a Corpser heading their way alongside a group of Locust stragglers.[5]


"Manners are the bedrock of civilization. Let's meet the asshole halfway."
—Sgt. Fenix, upon seeing the Locust

Sgt. Fenix called Command with a request for reinforcements. Command sent two KR units and a Centaur in while Anya took her APC, carrying the rest of Delta-One to meet up with Dom and Marcus who decided to lead a two-man ambush. With Dom and Marcus already laying fire on the Locust stragglers, PA-776 parked near three APCs, some without full armor plates, at the ambush site and one Gear squad gave Dom and Marcus fire support.[6]


With the Corpser trying to circle around the defensive line around Port Farrall and heading for the refugees along the main road from Jacinto, Anya was forced into crowd control with the citizens leaving Jacinto and requested armor from Lt. Donneld Mathieson which was difficult since the CIC Truck had no eyes on the ground. When KR Three-Five and Centaur Twenty-Eight arrived, they were able to take the Corpser and the Bloodmount out. With the arrival of the Coalition reinforcements, the Locust stragglers were wiped out, with the exception of one Drone which was captured and tortured by Gears until Marcus recommended to Bernie that she should just shoot the Grub which she did under the grounds that torturing it would hurt her back.[7]


Baird was angry that he was unable to get any information from the Grub and how he wanted to capture another one, but the idea was shot down by Marcus.[8]
